Title: Parentheticals
Edited By: Nicole Dehé
Yordanka Kavalova
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=LA%20106
Series Title: Linguistik Aktuell/Linguistics Today 106
Description:

This volume offers a unique collection of articles investigating the often
neglected phenomenon of parentheticals, which are commonly seen as
expressions interrupting the linear structure of a host utterance, but
lacking a structural relation to it. The book provides an up-to-date
introduction to the subject, as well as a range of research articles
addressing questions including the syntactic link between parenthetical and
frame utterance, the relation between syntactic and prosodic form, the
usage and interpretation of parentheticals, and many more. It embraces
research findings from different European languages (English, German,
Dutch, Romance) and covers an array of forms of syntactic interpolations
(from one-word parentheticals to clausal) and a range of methodologies,
including empirical research, corpus research, and theoretical analyses.
The collection underlines the importance of an interdisciplinary approach
to a multi-faceted phenomenon such as parentheticals.
